Same old car. This time with more mods

Decided to take a break as I was detailing a car today. And I started looking at my touring on the driveway, I realized I have never taken any recent pictures of it.. so I busted out my cousins dslr and took some driveway shots. Nothing special at all..

some recent mods are clears all around, and I smoked the rears for a meaner more aggressive look. Please excuse the FILTHY car. It has not moved in one month due to a leaky radiator hose that I will eventually fix..


its disgusting really.. I'm a detailer and my car looks like poop


Needs a new rear bumper..







Hopefully in the next two weeks this car will be CLEAN and back on the road again. I have been busy for the last two months and that short time really shows that I have neglected my car.. Keep in mind, she does have 170k miles.

Hmm. It looks like rust, but its not haha. My car is just covered in random crap from sitting..

It is on billy sports and HR sport springs made for a non-sport but the drop didn't do much. It needs race springs IMO, but I doubt I will like the ride quality on a DD basis

race springs wouldn't be too harsh if you have the correct shocks to go with it. ride in a car that has it first to see if it's too your likings

True, I feel the Bilstein Sports to be on the firm side already.. We will see, I really want to lower it more but keep the ride soft. Maybe I should just get some Air bags

I know what you mean. I'm sometimes downright imberassed when people come by for advice or a pre detail check up. As a detailer you just don't have the time to propperly detail your own car because your Always doing someone else his car.

Yeah, my interior is immaculate. But still, my E46 should be my example, haha. I will probably detail it this time next week and take some really nice photos of it. Let's see how long I manage to keep it clean though

Got her cleaned up!


Rolling shot I took on my iPhone, nothing special. My friend was driving my car, he really loved the car but agreed its not very fast :rofl


My favorite

Then this huge tree fell over, so I decided to use my wagon to tow up the driveway. Worked out really well and the car did great!


Gramps in the background un-doing the tow-hook.
